The Jewish Museum in Oslo opened in 2008 in what used to be a synagogue in Calmeyers gate 15b. In the years 1921-1942 the synagogue was an integral part of Jewish life in this part of Oslo. The museum presents the history of the Jews in Norway from...more

I’m not sure what I expected from my visit to the Oslo Jewish Museum, but I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered a simple yet dignified museum rich with history and tradition. The actual museum was one room in two parts. The first part told...More

This was a very interesting place. If I'm honest, I hadn't known about how badly the Norwegians treated their Jewish citizens during the war - this was very unexpected. It was very sobering, as these places tend to be. We had a tablet with highlights...More

This small museum offers an intimate portrait of Norwegian Jews during WW11. It's rare that a museum dealing with this subject offers such an intimate view of personal experiences. Learning about the rescue of over 1000 Jews was a moving reminder that a glimmer of...More

Lots of useful history with pictures and descriptions of the persecution of Jews during world war 2. Not as harrowing as the Terror Museum in Budapest but it shows that Jews all over Europe suffered under the Nazis and their allies.

This is a small museum that would take about an hour. The exhibits are simple, to the point, highly personal and cover some aspects of Jewish life in Oslo. It aims to both educate the general public about the history of the minority, but also...More

The Museum has 2 parts. One mainly on the WW2 experience of Norway's Jews--which I found very interesting and well done; and the other about jewish/life/ritual in general--which was OK, but less interesting/unique to me.

I've passed by this museum so many times and finally I went in. I was very pleasantly surprised. The museum was not big, but it contained a lot. The museum's building has been a former synagogue and the interior shows a little of this. In...More

The Oslo Jewish Museum is very sobering. To remember the atrocities of the holocaust and the treatment of the Jews generally during World War II is heartbreaking but necessary to ensure that this never happens again.

Nearly all of Norway's Jews were deported and exterminated during the Holocaust. The Oslo Jewish Museum celebrates the lives of those who perished. It also describes and explains contemporary Jewish life and ritual. We phoned on the day the museum was closed, but the director...More

6 Million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust - it's such an enormous number it's hard to grasp. This is the story of some 2000 Norwegian Jews - the ones that survived and the ones that didn't. This small and thoughtful museum tells their personal...More
